Code: 9781838790363
John M. Gonzalez, Sara M. Ebarb, Kelsey J. Phelps and Michael E. Dikeman, Kansas State University, USA

Chapter synopsis: Metabolic modifiers are compounds that are either fed to animals or implanted to improve rate of gain, feed efficiency, dressing percent, carcass meat yield, visual meat quality, shelf life or meat palatability. This chapter presents a general review of the effects of metabolic modifiers on carcass composition, fresh meat quality and cooked meat palatability. Emphasis will be on those metabolic modifiers that are approved for use in cattle in the United States and other developed countries. The main types of modifier discussed are anabolic steroid implants, beta-adrenergic agonists, vitamins D3, E and A, and somatotropin.
